1 Pedestrian safety

2 Every year, one in seven people killed on NSW roads is a pedestrian. Pedestrian crossings are used to reduce crashes and to help both pedestrians and drivers use the road safely. Whether you are walking or driving you must obey road rules to make sure pedestrian crossings are safe. Penalties apply for both drivers and pedestrians who break the law. When you are driving Give way to pedestrians if there is any danger of colliding with them. Drive at a speed at which you can stop safely before the crossing. Give way to a pedestrian who is crossing the road when turning left or right or making a U-turn. Always obey no stopping signs. Never overtake or pass a vehicle that is stopping or slowing at a crossing. 2

3 Tips Be aware of areas with high pedestrian activity, e.g. outside schools and shopping centres. Be mindful that older pedestrians need extra time to cross. Remember that children can be difficult to see and may act unpredictably. When you are a pedestrian You must always use a pedestrian crossing if there is one within 20 metres. Cross directly across the road and don t stay on the road any longer than necessary. Avoid walking on the road; choose the footpath or nature strip. If the road is the only alternative, face the oncoming traffic and stay as far to the side of the road as possible. 3

4 Marked foot crossings Many traffic lights have pedestrian signals to help you cross the road safely. Press the button and wait for the lights to change to the green walk symbol before crossing. Don t cross. Cross but watch out for vehicles. When the display flashes the don t walk signal, you should finish crossing but you should not begin to cross. At some crossings, the signs indicate that a pedestrian may walk in any direction on the green walk symbol. All cars are stopped at a red light so that this crossing can occur. 4

5 Tip As a pedestrian at traffic lights, make sure that vehicles stop before you start to cross, and don t go if vehicles are moving through the crossing. Flashing yellow arrows at marked crossings A flashing yellow arrow may be installed at some signalised marked foot crossings to remind drivers that they need to give way to pedestrians who are still crossing. When the don t walk sign is flashing for pedestrians, drivers will see a flashing yellow arrow. This means, if there s no risk of a collision, you can drive through the crossing. 5

6 Pedestrian crossings (zebra crossings) Drivers must slow down when approaching a pedestrian crossing and if necessary, stop safely before the crossing. Drivers must give way to any pedestrian on a pedestrian crossing. Some crossings are difficult for you to see, so zigzag white lines are painted on the road to give drivers advance warning. Tip Some drivers will not stop for pedestrians so wait until all vehicles have stopped before you start to cross. Raised pedestrian crossing Raised pedestrian crossings are placed at locations where there is a high level of pedestrian activity. They are raised to increase visibility of the crossing and pedestrians to approaching drivers. They also help to slow down the traffic. 6

7 Tips Always use pedestrian crossings. Remember that drivers take longer than usual to stop in wet and slippery conditions. Never assume that an approaching driver can see you or will stop for you, as their vision may be affected by the sun, poor light and parked cars. At intersections, check for turning vehicles before you leave the kerb and while you are crossing the road. Children up to at least eight years old should hold an adult s hand in the car park, on the footpath and when crossing the road. Children between eight and at least ten years old should be closely supervised by an adult in the traffic environment and should hold an adult s hand when crossing the road. Avoid using a mobile phone or portable media player (e.g. MP3) while you are crossing the road. These devices can distract you from checking for traffic. Watch out for cyclists. 7

8 Children s crossings Children s crossings are usually part-time crossings which operate before and after school hours and at other nominated times. When in use flags with the words CHILDREN CROSSING are displayed on both sides of the road. Drivers must slow down and stop before the stop line when a pedestrian is on a children s crossing or waiting to cross and remain stopped until all pedestrians are off the crossing. Zebra crossings are sometimes used as Children s crossings. When they are, the flags with the words CHILDREN CROSSING will be displayed. 8

9 School crossing supervisors Crossings near schools are sometimes supervised by school crossing supervisors. When the supervisor walks onto the road or displays a hand-held stop sign, drivers must slow down and stop before the stop line and can proceed only once the supervisor has moved off the crossing. Tip Children up to at least eight years old should hold an adult s hand in the car park, on the footpath and when crossing the road. Children between eight and at least ten years old should be closely supervised by an adult in the traffic environment and should hold an adult s hand when crossing the road. 9

10 Pedestrian refuge islands Pedestrian refuge islands are not pedestrian crossings; they are installed on busy or wide roads to help pedestrians cross in two stages. Sometimes they are used with a pedestrian crossing, when a staged crossing is required. By crossing in stages, you only have to concentrate on traffic from one direction at a time. Refuge islands are generally not part of a marked crossing so be careful and wait for a break in the traffic. 10

11 Shared paths Across NSW there are paths that can be used by both pedestrians and bicycle riders. When walking on a shared path, be aware that cyclists can travel much faster and may suddenly appear around a corner or behind you. As a pedestrian make sure you: Keep to the left Move off the path to the left if you wish to stop Keep animals on short leads and under control. Contact your local council about the shared paths and walks in your local area. 11

12 40 km/h High Pedestrian Activity Areas (HPAA) HPAA are sections of road where there is a high degree of interaction between vehicles and pedestrians. They may be near shopping strips, railway stations, bus interchanges, beach-sides and services such as medical centres. The maximum speed limit is 40 km/h at all times and associated traffic calming measures help to alert drivers to the lower speed limit and make them aware of the presence of pedestrians moving about or near the road. 12

13 Shared zones A shared zone is a street where pedestrians, bicycle riders and other vehicles can share the road safely. When driving or riding in a shared zone, give way to all pedestrians and keep to the 10 km/h speed limit. 13

14 No stopping zones No stopping signs are placed next to pedestrian crossings so that pedestrians can have a clear view of approaching vehicles and drivers can see pedestrians who are about to cross the road. It s illegal and dangerous to stop in these areas. 14
